Global lead long-term outlook Q1 2016

Report summary

Following a balanced market last year, refined lead supply-demand moves into significant deficits for this year and next due to inadequate mine supply that will curtail primary smelter output and force prices higher. Compounded by enduring scrap tightness holding secondary raw material costs at elevated levels, the commodity price will peak during 2018 before receding again as the market balance moves back into surplus. Medium-term global growth will be 3.0% pa, driven by Asian vehicle demand, as many economies continue the process of recovery and investor confidence returns to the Chinese economy.
